In 2013 a bunch of us decided to pool our resources and buy a server. We wanted to be able to offer and alternative to the dominant video-calling software. We had heard that a VoIP sever should not be installed on a VPS (virtual private server) but on a machine with its own hardware clock, because timing is of the essence with this service. The same could be argued for other networking services like DNS or firewall. Luckily there was a small, cheap, and environmentally friendly(!) server for sale at a shop in Amsterdam. The Eco Breeze at twp.nl.
After buying a new machine in 2013 we decided to hang it up in a commercial data hosting centre in The Netherlands. That was fine for a few years but then we got an offer we could not refuse.
